February 2014 Pocket Change Portfolio Performance

The Pocket Change Portfolio (PCP) was first introduced on September 13, 2008 as a real money dividend income portfolio funded by the "pocket change" earned from my various online endeavors. Each month I report on the portfolio's progress and dividends earned.

Dividends Received

Total dividends received during the month were $981.12. This is an increase of $447.32 from the $533.80 received in February 2013. Below are the PCP dividends received over the last 13 months:

- Feb 2014 981.12
- Jan 2014 $819.63
- Dec 2013 $1,099.16
- Nov 2013 $588.24
- Oct 2013 $901.87
- Sep 2013 $1,170.44

- Apr 2013 $1,022.68

Annualized Dividend Income

Including new purchases and dividend increases, my annual PCP dividend income is now $12,943.94 at the current dividend rates. This is up $499.92 from last month's $12,444.02 amount. The PCP has never experienced a monthly decline in annualized dividend income.

Portfolio Returns

- Year-to-date: -1.19%
- Life-to-date: 16.87% (annualized)

That's it for this month. The next PCP report will be mid-to-late April. Thanks for for reading!
